A trip to Bali is never a bad idea. If you’re looking for a laidback beachfront getaway, or a lush jungle hideaway, travelling to the Island of the Gods should be at the top of your list. Offering rich greenery and diverse landscapes, Bali is great if you want to escape the stresses of city life. Try out spiritual experiences and surf lessons, or even lay down on a beach and do absolutely nothing. It’s not hard to pack plenty of activities into your itinerary, even if you’re there for a few days.
Where to stay: Head for the cliffs and escape into Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort, where you get sensational ocean views of the world-renowned Impossible Beach. The beach is one of the most famous surf points in Bali where surfers can descend through the resort’s beach elevator to the beautiful rocky beach. Book the resort’s ‘Back to Bali’ package and disappear into a world of indulgence beginning with a complimentary Balinese massage, cliffside dining with the best views of Uluwatu’s fabled surf break and opportunities to explore the Island of the Gods. Prices start at US$745 for three nights, and you can make a reservation here.
